"Reality is a funny thing, you know... Reality is what you believe; believe it to be. It's what you put your thought and energy into, because your hands physically manifest thought. So your world becomes what you feel and what you think."

"You have to realize: ok, I don't know how to solve a political problem, I don't know how to solve the pollution problem... all I know is in my own life, I need to figure out some sense of purpose, I need to figure out how to be happy... and I'm willing to give up looking at all you and trying to do everyone else's laundry and look at myself and what do I need... and that's profound. We point so many fingers and go 'this person isn't... are you blah blah blah?" If we all just took care of ourselves it'd be very efficient... all I can do ultimately in my own life... all I can speak is from my experience."
